Acting as a true HR Project Lead it is your goal to make Effectory the once in a lifetime employer for our employees. You’ll do this in a challenging self-organizing, ambitious environment right in the heart of Amsterdam.  


The purpose of your job

In this job you have the kickass responsibility to follow up on HR trends and develop an innovative, yet effective HR strategy to strengthen Effectory furthermore and make us the once in a life time employer for our employees. When initiating changes or projects in the full spectrum of HR, you do your utmost to be distinctive and progressive, but at the same time you keep it simple and effective. Are you up for this challenge?


What you can expect

Surely you must be curious about what kind of projects you can expect in this job and what we’d like you to bring to the table.


A highly engaging employee experience is of paramount importance to us. At HR we initiate changes ourselves, put together the appropriate content and implement this in collaboration with our colleagues. Subjects vary from challenges in team transitions, organizational change, fair renumeration, a transparent salary framework, outstanding employer branding strategy and effective learning & development activities, just to mention a few examples.

You are used to thinking along in the strategy of the organization and submit the link to the best HR direction and, by extension, the projects that arise from it. From the way you act and make your choices we would like to recognize an HR architect who knows how the execution can best be done and takes a fair share in the implementation.


The annual base salary for this role is approximately 70,000 based on your qualifications. In addition to that Effectory's employees benefit from the company's profit through a profit sharing scheme. 


Digging into the field and tackling HR projects with the team, we need your support in coaching your less experienced colleagues in the team like no other, especially your side-kick (medior) HR Projects & Change Manager. Besides that, the team consists of energetic and ambitious colleagues who love recruiting and advising our employees about HR topics.


This is you:

You can say you’ve been in the game for a while but that doesn’t mean you’re played out. Without top-down boundaries, you’re not only here to play along, you’re in it to make a change! We would like our candidate to be experienced in advising on a tactical and strategic (HR) level and translate this into HR projects. We would love you to come from a a startup/ scale up environment, maybe even self-steering like we are. Your extensive HR experience is very much appreciated, but your personality is the cherry on the cake for us: we love a positive can-do attitude, confident, critical even a bit stubborn from time to time (but able to explain why), social and passionate. You feel comfortable speaking and writing in English and Dutch. What we see is what we get. You know the importance of effective communication, managing expectations and you truly know the meaning of feedback, because for us, it means the world! 


Effectory – Europe’s leading feedback specialist – is a thriving company with more than 200 entrepreneurial, young and ambitious professionals who help big and medium sized companies to collect feedback and ideas from their employees. Our mission is to work on making the working world better. Based in the center of Amsterdam, Munich and Cape Town, our multi-disciplinary and self-managing teams collaborate with more than 100 clients in ‘industries’ as varied as Retail, Production, Services and Non-Profit in over 70 countries. 


Historically we have a strong foothold at the Dutch market which was our place of birth and we can't be stopped! To meet our growth ambition, we are determined to only hire eager and enthusiastic employees - both starters and experienced workers - who help infuse our business with even more energy.  



While working from our wonderful office overlooking the Amsterdam canals (Cultural Heritage), you'll have a front row seat in one of the most progressive thinking and mission driven companies -- but you won't be sitting still. After you are onboarded to fully grasp your role in fulfilling Effectory's mission, you can make use of extensive professional and personal development opportunities, on and off the job. And with hard work should come fun: Friday drinks, legendary office parties, our Annual Big Day, team sport initiatives like the 'Dam tot Dam'-run, our own boat to cruise the canals of Amsterdam and an organic lunch served daily. That, topped with a competitive salary and a fair piece of the profit-pie... need we say more?
